How much is my soda collectible worth ?

There are a few books available that list almost every soda item produced.  These books, along with current market prices are the guidelines that we use in pricing collectibles.  The value of your collectible also depends on the condition of the item.   The condition of any collectible is the most important factor in determining its value.  

Collectors use the grading system ranging from Poor to Mint.  Poor would have dents, bends, extensive fading and wear, rust areas, and torn paper.  Mint is in new condition, unused, and flawless.  

The best way for us to give you an idea of your collectible's value is to describe it as completely as possible.  If you can send a photo that is the best method.  

If your interested in researching your own collectible check our list of resource material on our Information page.

What year was my soda collectible produced ?

Dating a collectible can be done several ways.   

If there is a slogan on the collectible, then dating is helpful.  Dating by slogan is not absolute, but is one clue.

Several Soda Collectible books are available to help you date your collectible.

We can also help.  If you have a photo to send that is the best way for us to determine when your collectible was produce.

What is the value of my Soda Pop Machine ?

It's difficult to give an exact value of your machine.  The value of a machine is based on its condition, model number and rarity.

The best way is to send us a photo of your machine.  If you don't have a photo then try to send us the model number and a description.
